Postal Codes in Denmark

Postal code number, in most countries is put in front of the address designation in order to ensure the identification of a specific post office. In Denmark zip codes were introduced in 1967 as a term for each of the country's distribution posthuse (address posthuse). Using a four-digit numerical code. The first digit indicates a total of nine postal code areas, e.g. 7000 Fredericia. The second digit divides each of the nine postal code areas in ten sections, e.g., 7100 Vejle. These areas are further subdivided through a third digit, e.g., 7190 Billund, and, if necessary, a fourth, e.g. 7182 bredsten, until each address post Office got its number. An exception to this is Copenhagen K, Denmark and Copenhagen V and Frederiksberg C, where individual streets pga. the large volume of consignments have specific zip codes.

Postal codes were introduced as part of the rationalisation of the sorting work associated with the rapidly growing mail volumes up through the 1960s. Record numbers was also a prerequisite for the power letter sorting.
